SOLID FUEL INSTALLER and BIO-MASS BOILERS

Assessment Information

The assessment is a combination of both practical and theory examinations.
The training manual will serve both as a means of learning, as well as a tool of reference for future use.

This course covers the key competencies required in order to safely and correctly install Solid Fuel & Woody Biomass heating systems and is aimed at qualified heating engineers. Included in this course are an alternative to  HETAS H001 – 006

  • N/SVQ Level 2/3 in Gas Installation and Maintenance or equivalent earlier certification.

AND if not included in the above qualification

  • Water Regulations/Water Byelaws
  • Energy Efficiency for Domestic Heating
  • Unvented Hot Water

Further Information

 

An important element of this course is to understand the requirement to meet National Occupation Standards for competency for installation of domestic solid wood-based biomass heating systems. The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) biomass standard covers installations with an output up to 45KWth

This BPEC training course can be used towards registration on the range of schemes available, including Competent Persons registration (CPS), HETAS, APHC,NAPIT, NICEIC and the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)

Expiry Information  Certificates are normally valid for 5 years.
